It also includes announcements of the FTC and FDA sending  warning letters to seven companies about unsupported claims that products can treat or prevent Coronavirus; the first round of money refunds totaling $153 million sent to consumers from the multi-agency case against Western Union; and the release of the FTC annual privacy update for 2019, highlighting record fines and international cooperation.
